fulton market butchers
i drive by them all the time, but wondering if people can recommend some of the better butchers over in the river west / fulton market area. obviously ones that are wholesale to the public.
You should try Peoria Packing & Butcher Shop at 1300 W. Lake St Chicago, IL 60607; (312) 738-1800.
It's pretty rad. And i bought steaks and a ton of other stuff for less than $18. It was ridiculous amazing and fun. Bring a hoodie though; it's pretty chilly. :)
Peoria Packing is great for cheap cheap prices. I tend to shop there for things like chicken, pork, bulk sausages, ground beef and stuff like short ribs. However, I do find the quality of their steaks often lacking.
For nicer steaks at still reasonable prices, I love Columbus Meats on Randolph. They carry choice or higher beef, and will custom cut and trim to your needs. T-bones, strips and ribeyes are typically $6-8/lb.
